on education nation yesterday. he will have a good debate performance. two, he needs an -- some form of implosion or serious mistake by the obama campaign or some international event that doesn't rally people around the president but focuses people on a perceived weakness. i don't think either of those are likely to happen. in terms of a mistake by the obama campaign, they've always been fairly safe and cautious. if this were a sporting event, i would say they're running out the clock right now. >> running out the clock and, in fact, perhaps too cautious. you've got hillary clinton going to, perhaps, a dozen meetings with foreign leaders and president obama already out of here in ohio, not meeting with any of the foreign leaders, do you think that they are playing it too safe by not meeting with president morsi, not meeting with netanyahu, avoided any pitfalls here in new york? >> well, maybe, but i heard bill clinton answer that question. he as always dispenses wisdom. the problem with meeting let's say netanyahu and the egyptian leader and libyan leader is you didn't meet with five
america wants. mainstream america wants to make sure their kids get an education, they have access to health care we don't revamp the entire social security system to meet inside restrains that paul ryan thinks works but doesn't work for america. this is real questions on voters' mines and that's changed the dynamic of the election and we're seeing great candidates on our side with that message who are going to win in november. >> and in massachusetts, republican scott brown has apologized for what some of his aides did in appearing on this video where they were mocking elizabeth warren for her native-american heritage. that is apology sufficient and should this be an issue in this campaign? >> certainly it's up to the people of massachusetts to determine that. they have watched this race, they have seen scott brown tell people to take a look at elizabeth warren to determine her heritage, which is frankly offensive to me, people in massachusetts will make that determination. but i will say this. again, we have a race where elizabeth warren is fighting for the values that american f
, better education systems. >> "the washington post's" chief correspondent dan balz joins me now. you watched so many of these debates and posed eight questions that you think sets the stage for tonight. >> right. >> let's talk about first what's at stake here. the first debate, the first face-off between the two men. >> the first debate is always the most important. it draws the biggest audience. the stakes for both president obama and mitt romney are big. but obviously bigger for mitt romney because he's had a bad couple of weeks and i think there is more pressure on him at this point to do something that changes the nature of the debate, changes the nature of the race, gives people an opportunity to take a fresh look at him and i think that's what he'll be trying to do tonight. >> what do you think the winning strategies are? your second question. the winning strategies for each side. >> the winning strategy for governor romney is to do two things which are not easily done together. one is to be pretty aggressive on the president, to go after him, to attack him in ways that he's no
manufacturing jobs back from overseas and putting americans back to work, improving our educational system, recruiting and training math and science teachers to get our children prepared for those important jobs. >> those are goals. those are goals and mitt romney has goals. but when are -- >> no, no andrea -- >> specific. >> it is not a goal to end tax breaks for companies that move jobs overseas and incentivize them to come back and create a million jobs in manufacturingp. we've seen the greatest increase in manufacturing jobs in more than 20 years under this president. so we have a sense of what has to happen in order to bring those businesses back and create those jobs. those aren't goals. you know, reducing our dependence on foreign oil by increasing our domestic production incentivizing clean energy to create jobs and put people back to work, those aren't goals, those are plans to continue to move this economy forward. look, i also hope that mitt romney will take some of the time paul ryan didn't want to take in his interview this weekend and try to explain the arithmetic behind thei
